FCode Interpreter

Plug-in drivers are written in a byte-coded, machine-independent, interpreted language called FCode. FCode is based on FORTH semantics. Because FCode is machine-independent, the same device and driver can be used on machines with different CPU instruction sets. Each OpenBoot image contains an FCode interpreter.
